Breaking Worse: The Emergence of Krokodil and Excessive Injuries among People who Inject Drugs in Eurasia In the last years people who inject drugs (PWID) in Eurasia have increasingly responded to heroin ‘droughts’ and shortages in other illicit drugs, by injecting highly toxic homemade drugs from medications from pharmacies, according to a new article by researchers at the Utrecht based Addiction Research Centre, Columbia University in New York and the Centre for Research on Drugs and Health Behaviour in London.
The review commentary, published as “Editors’ Choice” in the July 2013 issue of the International Journal of Drug Policy (IJDP), summarizes existing evidence on the highly damaging practice of injecting krokodil, a liquid opioid concoction that PWID in several Eurasian countries produce themselves, often in regions where heroin is unavailable or because of the comparatively significantly lower price of the homemade injectable.
